Comments:

  FreeDOS ignores everything on a REM line.
  Use remarks (REM) to add explanatory notes to the config.sys and 
  to disable lines in the config.sys file so that they won't run.
  In CONFIG.SYS you can also use ";" at the beginning of the line.
  REM is a command internal to kernel.sys and needs no other file
  in order to work. REM also exists as AUTOEXEC.BAT/BATCH/COMMAND.COM
  command.
